We arrived to a big welcome and lots of hugs!
Our drive down from Blue Mesa was on one of the most scenic roads, yes big enough for a motorhome, in Colorado in our estimation, Rte 149. It cuts down through Lake City and Creede, Southfork, and over the Wolf Creek Pass, 10,856', into Pagosa Springs. It also goes over Slumgullion Pass, 11,361', and Spring Creek Pass, 10,901', so it is not for the faint of heart.
|Our lunch stop above Lake City|
It was sad though, over and around Slumgullion Pass, the beetle infestation has absolutely destroyed square miles of pines, and they are clear cutting some of the dead trees in perhaps 200-400 yard swaths along the highway, just a shame.
